We wait to hear from the FBI about the many unanswered questions surrounding the Tsanaevs but are assured, I don’t know if by the FBI or by information from mysterious parties who are unidentified, that the Tsarnaevs acted alone. Déjà vu the Kennedy assassination. A day after Kennedy was a murdered J. Edgar Hoover decided that it was done by one man with no other accomplices and all investigations were directed to confirm the decision he made in Washington, DC with little knowledge of the crime.
The FBI refuses to tell us what happened both before the Marathon Terrorist Attack and afterwards. Almost all Americans seem content with that. Then it appears we learn that perhaps what has been told us by those parties who are unidentified that there may be more to this. We never would have known about it except the FBI has killed a Chechen. The Boston Globe reported that ““The agent along with two Massachusetts State Police troopers and other law enforcement personnel were interviewing an individual in connection with the Boston Marathon bombing investigation.”
Fortlunately I think that is clearly wrong. Putting pieces together first thing you answer is the question is why the Massachusetts State Police would be in Orlando, Florida. I can tell you they are not involved in the investigation of the terrorist attack. It had to be something else. It was.
Here’s what I figure. They are in the middle of investigating the 2011 murder of three men, Brendan Mess, Erik Weissman and Raphael Teken in Waltham. They were investigating 27 year old Chechen Ibragim Todashev who is a friend of Tamerlan Tsarnaev and lived with him in Boston around the time of the murders. The problem was that the way the murders were done it had to have been done by more than one man. Todashev seemed to fit the bill. This has been confirmed by NBC news.
So you know why they are talking to Todashev. You probably will never know why Todashev was killed. The problem now is that the matter will be under investigation by the FBI who will investigate why an FBI agent killed a person being interviewed by an FBI agent and several other law enforcement agents.
It is said he pulled a knife and injured the FBI agent. There are at least five cops in the room, how does that happen? It’d be nice to know but you know the FBI will only tell us the agent acted properly and not that it was a major screw up. Nor will the FBI tell us what the agent was doing there if it was an investigation of a Massachusetts homicide.
This is the great dilemma that America faces: it has a secret police force that is only answerable to itself. It is something that the founders of our nation could never have anticipated. It is a force totally inimical to an open and free society. No agency can investigate itself; and yet we watch while this is being done over and over again and the underlying results of its investigation are kept secret from us. We only get conclusions.
All we now know is Todashev of Orlando, Florida, was gunned down by an FBI agent. The FBI reported:“The agent was interviewing Todashev about the Boston Marathon bombings along with two Massachusetts State Police troopers and other authorities early Wednesday morning, . . . Todashev attacked the officers, and he injured the agent before being shot and killed. Neither the agent nor the officers were identified. Media reports early Wednesday said the shooting occurred at the apartment complex where Todashev apparently lived.” But that really doesn’t make sense because the Massachusetts State Police were there.
You have to look at this video. Todashev had been previously interviewed by the FBI. His friend said: Dunkaev, 25, said he and other Chechens were taken to the Kissimmee Police Department two days ago and interviewed by the FBI for three hours. Then, during the early morning hours, a force of law enforcement agents descend upon where Todashev’s lived.
Why the big force? Did they have warrants? How long was the interview ongoing before the killing took place. Why was the FBI agent so quick on the trigger? What were his injuries? What did the other law enforcement people do? How many were there? Did they have a warrant to go to Todashev’s place. If so, what did the affidavits say?
This is a good case to watch. Let’s see how much of the truth we can learn about the death of Todashev. Will we know the name of the agent and the other officers in the room? Will we hear their stories? There’s so much to know and I’m anxiously waiting if we find these things out, there’s nothing secret about them.
